Eva-Maria Zimmermann
 
Swiss pianist Eva-Maria Zimmermann maintains a career on two continents through performances that are “breathtakingly intense” (Der Bund, Switzerland) and “brilliant and sensitive” (Berner Oberländer). Her solo appearances include recitals as well as concerto performances with major symphony orchestras such as the Orchestra de la Suisse Romande.

Winner of the prestigious Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship, Eva-Maria has appeared at international festivals in Israel, the US and Europe including the Festival Piano en Saintonge in France, the Sommerfestspiele Murten in Switzerland and the Yerba Buena International Music Festival in San Francisco. Eva-Maria has studied with many distinguished musicians such as Leon Fleisher, György Sebök, Leonard Hokanson and Dominique Merlet. She graduated with highest honors from the Conservatory of Geneva.

Eva-Maria is a musician of broad interests and in addition to her solo appearances devotes herself to chamber music, lieder recitals, and teaching. She actively collaborates with the Del Sol String Quartet and Bass-Baritone René Perler and was founding member of the award winning Charmillion Piano Quartet. As an educator, Eva-Maria has been a faculty member of the University of San Francisco and currently teaches in the music program at the Nueva School in Hillsborough, CA, which was founded by Sir Yehudi Menuhin.

Eva-Maria spent her early childhood in Indonesia, where her parents were Peace Corps workers. Being exposed to different cultures and languages from very early on has greatly enhanced her understanding of diverse styles of music and art. Eva-Maria currently lives in San Francisco where she pursues her career while raising a family.
